The Coaches feature in TeamGenius allows you to assign coaches to a team or player pool and invite them through TeamGenius to conduct evaluations. You can also check their progress within an assessment for the team they've been assigned to.
Note: By creating a coach, you are not inviting them to be an admin in the system. They will not be able to see results or manage the admin side of the platform. Creating a coach allows you to assign the coach to a team so they are able to evaluate that team once you send them an invite to do so.
Below we'll explore how to:
- Create Coaches
- Manage Coaches
- Assign Coaches to Teams
- Assign Coaches to Player Pools
At the top, scroll over the Teams menu and select Manage Coaches.
Step 1: Click Mange Coaches under Manage Your Teams.
Step 2: Click on the green Create Coach button. If you have a long list of coaches in a CSV file format, you can also click Import Coaches - see article here.
Step 3: Add the coach's first name, last name and email address. Remember to hit Save once you've completed these fields.
Optional: Click on the green Create Coach button again if you need to create additional coaches.
Managing coaches allows you to Edit a coach's details or delete the coach.

If you need to update the coach's name, email or team assignment click the blue Edit button located left of the coaches name on the Coaches page.
